So, you’re getting a new furnace. It may be a big investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is so important to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can expect it to take several hours. To help make the process go as quickly and smoothly as possible, there are some things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be back to cozy comfort in no time.
It’s very common for a furnace room to act as storage space. So, if there is items near your furnace or in its path, move it a safe distance away for the installation. Don’t forget that the Vogts Heating & Air technicians will need plenty of room surrounding the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will give them space and will help keep your belongings from being damaged. You can be sure that our professionals will take extra care to keep your home clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also wise to move any furniture that’s in the path to the furnace room.
You should be aware that you might need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your former furnace. Plus, now is the ideal time to upgrade to a smart thermostat to take full advantage of all the benefits of a new furnace. A smart thermostat can help ensure peak comfort and keep your house at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or selected a new thermostat installed during your furnace installation, you may also want to have touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
